Written in January by Birtley Residents, Mary Mirecki, Iris Newton and Pat Scrase, the following poem captures the very essence of spring in the countryside.
A peaceful new day, with vibrant blue sky
I listen intently to birds chirp and cry
Many buds now bloom into life
Finally giving up the winter strife
The air is fresh, with a gentle breeze
Aeroplanes leave white trails with great ease
The trees branch out, with new leaves shiny green
And sweet smelling blossom, the best I’ve seen
The lambs hop and skip in fields of green grass
Whilst the odd clouds above arrive and then pass
We are now so thankful that spring is here
And we embrace this season with jolly good cheer!
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
